Echo Global Logistics Inc. has launched a rewards program built for its carrier network, the Chicago-based company announced.

Designed as a tiered program with three levels of benefits, EchoDrive Preferred is a way to attract and reward loyal carriers and drivers, the company said in a Nov. 20 news release.

EchoDrive Preferred complements Echo’s proprietary EchoDrive portal and mobile app that give carriers real-time access to search, view and bid on available loads. The system gives dispatchers the ability to manage loads and drivers from one centralized location, while letting drivers provide real-time tracking and submit documents quickly, allowing for faster payment, Echo Global officials said.

EchoDrive Preferred provides early freight access via EchoDrive and enhanced payment terms based on a carrier’s relationship with Echo Global. The program offers Ryder discounts on truck leases, preventative maintenance programs and rental equipment. It also provides fuel and additional discounts via Wex, including maintenance, discounts on inspections and roadside service, the company said.

Echo Global ranks No. 38 on the Transport Topics Top 50 list of the largest logistics companies in North America. — Transport Topics
